Malawi | Lions reintroduced to Liwonde NP after 20-year absence
Nonprofit conservation organization African Parks has completed a series of lion translocations from South Africa to Malawi as part of its wider efforts to restore Malawi's parks. As a result, lions can once again be seen at the Liwonde National Park for the first time in 20 years.
Seven lions from South Africa joined two males brought from the Majete Wildlife Reserve in March to re-establish the species in the park. Their arrival also follows the recent reintroduction of cheetah to Liwonde in May 2017, as part of a wider initiative to restore predators to the region.
